The Nova Scotia RCMP is investigating after a man died in a car crash Saturday morning.
In a release, police say they were notified of a collision on Ferry Road in Wallace just before 11 a.m.
“Cumberland County District RCMP, Fire and EHS attended the scene and found a SUV off the road in a ditch along the roadway with minor damage to the vehicle,” the release said.
“The driver of the SUV, a 82-year-old man from Wallace was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
It said the preliminary investigation indicates the car left the roadway and went straight into a ditch.
The road was closed for several hours and has since reopened, the release said.
The investigation is ongoing.
